SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - A teacher's aide for a Scottsdale school remains jailed Thursday after being accused of possessing child pornography photos and video at his home in the Phoenix suburb.
   
Alvin Ray McClellan was booked into a Maricopa County jail after being arrested Wednesday on 10 felony counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
   
Detectives from a crimes-against-children task force searched McClelland's home Wednesday morning. He's being held in jail in lieu of $100,000 bond.
   
The 44-year-old McClellan works at Mohave Middle School.
   
The Scottsdale Unified School District says it is cooperating with the investigation but declined comment on McClellan's employment.
   
A court document says a lawyer will be appointed for McClellan.
